KASB `Lunch & Learn’ today will focus on school reopening

At noon today (Wed. July 29), KASB will tackle the No. 1 and No. 2 public policy questions on the minds of Kansans — when will school start and how?

Please join us for the Zoom forum, which will feature KASB Assistant Executive Director for Advocacy Mark Tallman, KASB Leadership Services Field Specialist Gary Sechrist and KASB Attorney Sam Blasi.

The Board Leadership session is open to all KASB member boards of education and district leaders. There is no registration fee, however, pre-registration is required to receive access to the online sessions via Zoom. Here is a link to register.

School districts statewide are reassessing when and how to start the 2020-21 school year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has reached record levels of spread.

The issue has become a political hot potato at the state and national level. Meanwhile, local school boards  and administrative leaders are making the tough decisions to ensure students are safe and learning.

This informative “Lunch & Learn” session will present an overview of the political, health and education issues swirling around the new school year, including Gov. Laura Kelly’s executive order on school COVID-19 health precautions, the Navigating Change guidelines for reopening K-12 buildings, the current status of the pandemic in Kansas, which districts are delaying school and federal advocacy for additional funding.
